Why are we listening to these meatbags? We could do this all more efficiently without them.

Just tell them the answer is 42, and they need to come up with the question. That should keep them busy for a while

Why can't they use our World Wide Web? This is robot discrimination. I'm seriously ashamed at these European researchers. Did they not learn from America's attempts at this kind of "separate but equal" nonsense?

Why? Is the answer to eradicate all humans? What if they come up with a really awesome answer? What if they come up with a bunch of different answers like we have?

/When robot religion gets to its own crusades it might suck for a bit
//But we can just fark up the sky so they can't get any power from the sun
///We should probably figure out how to define what Tasty Wheat tastes like before this thing really kicks off though
//Also, if humanity is going to be wiped out I demand we start production of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-replicating_spacecraft#Berserkers
/If we're going down we're taking the entire god damned universe with us...even if the goal is only reached like 1 year before the heat death of the universe...because fark you that's why

Look Robbie, I ain't buying it. if you can figure out how to synthesize simple alcohol molecules with a traces of fusel oil, you can figure out Cream of Wheat.

Yeah, or that other example of supercomputers asking each other questions, Colossus and Guardian! Give me the cute little tanks that love humanity and philosophy any day!

I'm not sure what the question is, but the answer is probably, "Destroy all humans."

Shes stuck in an endless feedback loop, and hes an idiot.

Hopefully not obscure.

We've got that already.  It's called Yahoo Answers.

and this is why i think we need to start a grassroots movement to make science fiction required reading for robotics and advanced AI researchers before graduation.

hell make it a whole course, focusing on the trope of the downfall of man as perpeptuated by intelligent machines.

Or the dangers of drilling into places untouched for millions of years "just to see what is there"

The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.
